Hilke MacIntyre was born and grew up in Germany near the Danish border. She studied at the College for Art & Architecture in Kiel/Germany and after a diploma in architecture worked for a few years in various architect’s offices.

Her paintings, linocuts and ceramic reliefs are exhibited
in galleries throughout Britain.
“I work in a simplified figurative style and enjoy using bold shapes, strong colours and patterns. The world around me, especially nature, animals and people, give me plenty ideas for pictures. Particular influences are primitive art, artists of the early 20th century and contemporary design.”
